Thanks to the Agit Reader and Kevin J. Elliott for the wonderful write-up of the Misra SXSW Showcase 2014. Head here to see pictures (like the one above of Swearing At Motorists’ Dave Doughman) and read the warming piece.

We’re hoping Swearing At Motorists play the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson in future days, however, for now, S@M were name-dropped on Ferguson’s show. In light of SXSW 2014 being right around the corner, the band was part of a game entitled “Which Is Not An Actual Band Name?”
Swearing At Motorists are playing the MISRA SXSW SHOWCASE 2014.
Misra is preparing to work with Swearing At Motorists in future days. Here is a gem off “While Laughing, the Joker Tells the Truth”—the band’s first full-length in nearly eight years.
TORRES [link] and Motel Beds [link] (bottom playlist) both made NPR lists in preparation for SXSW. Both artists are playing the MISRA SXSW SHOWCASE 2014. Misra will be partnering with TORRES and Motel Beds on the following releases in the near future:
TORRES b/w Motel Beds with Kelley Deal • “The Harshest Light” b/w “Tropics of the Sand” • Official Record Store Day 2014 Release • MSR072

R. Ring — the wildly original two-piece band featuring The Breeders’ Kelley Deal & Ampline’s Mike Montgomery — are on SPIN Magazine’s list of “Safe Bets” for SXSW 2014. The 2014 SXSW Misra Showcase is shaping up nicely and will be announced here in the not-so-distant future. It features R. Ring and others TBA.
